My least favorite Oktoberfest. Amber colored. Has a metalic finish. I’ve had it on tap at Haus Murphy’s, so I know it’s not just a bad batch. I’ll drink this when they run out of the good stuff.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. The pour was a medium crystal clear amber/orange with an average sized (1-2 finger) rocky head that dissipated quickly and had poor lacing.
The aroma was kind of sweet with a strong grain malt, a mild floral hop and a sweet moldy scented yeast that had a very mild hint of caramel.
The taste was malty sweet and mildly acidic in the beginning and finished slightly bitter with a sweet caramel malt flavor and had a mild alcohol tinge at the end, The flavor stuck around for a decent amount of time after the swallow allowing for further enjoyment of the malty sweetness.
Mouthfeel was light in body and mildly dry in texture with a prickly carbonation.
Overall a brew that somewhat is in alignment with the style, although it was a little light in flavor for a typical Märzen.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased from Remke/Biggs in Cincinnati, Ohio - Alright, this one poured a golden brew with a fast fading white head and a definetly malt sugar smelling aroma. Tastewise, this one is a strong examble of an everyday German’s Oktoberfest brew, but there’s nothing really special about it.
